Sitting at the counter when I ordered my lunchtime chicken katsu curry bento box at my local Japanese takeaway the other day was a copy of Eat-Japan magazine – a brochure promoting all the Japanese restaurants and food shops in London. The brochure also has a directory of some more general oriental food stores. I list below the ones which look like they do Korean groceries, and I’ll update the list as people tell me of more (thanks for the Manchester one, Beccy).

  • Loon Fung (outlets in Alperton, Chinatown, Silvertown and Tottenham)
  • SeeWoo (outlets in Glasgow, Greenwich and Chinatown)
  • Wing Yip (outlets in Birmingham, Croydon, Cricklewood and Manchester)
